The Inhuman Royal Family may have spent generations living on the moon in Attilan, but that doesn't mean they ignore the current events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
As shown on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, Inhumans are a growing concern on Earth ever since Terrigenesis began happening to those unknowingly exposed to Terrigen through fish oil. Marvel's Inhumans showrunner Scott Buck admits this is something the new series will have to acknowledge.
"We have to be aware of what else is happening in the universe because our characters, especially those who happen to live on Earth, are aware of all those things," Buck tells ComicBook.com. "So we can't pretend that that has not happened. We can't pretend that Terrigenesis from Agents of SHIELD has not been happening.
"But what is sort of beneficial to us is that our characters have been hiding for generation after generation after generation," Buck continues. "So people are not aware of them. They've never heard of these people who have been living in Attilan."
While the Inhuman Royal Family may be set apart from the Marvel Cinematic Universe at large in the present day, their history ties them directly to one of Marvel's major cosmic players.
"For me, also, I'm a big Marvel fan as well, so for me, I'm also seeing, 'How can I tie it in?'" director Roel Reiné says. "Remember, Inhumans are a specific thing, but they also go back to the Kree and the Kree has kind of a big history in the Marvel language, so I was kind of trying to put a lot of Easter eggs in the episode where you see the Kree language and artwork. So I'm trying to tie into that world."
In Marvel's Inhumans, after the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them,but Earth itself.
The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. Marvel's The Inhumans will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.
Marvel's Inhumans stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Ken Leung as Karnak, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Mike Moh as Triton, Sonya Balmores as Auran, and Ellen Woglom.
